feinstein's bill is an effort to codified the n.s.a.'s of both collection of americans telephone records which is in fact on shaky legal footing right now and there's another program that's being legalized in this bill which has not gotten as much attention as as it really should which is the back door searches of international communications and so what has been happening is that the n.s.a. is allowed under the phys ed limits act to go collect huge amounts of communications of people who are suspected to be foreigners overseas without any individual or it because they are foreigners overseas but one of the well the well one group is fighting to restore the privacy of e-mails they call themselves the dark mail alliance and they've created an encrypted spy proof platform phillips imerman the president and co-founder of silent circle told r.t. about his bid to resist surveillance. we're trying to restore the privacy.

a scourge for iraq and the middle east the iraqi prime minister has arrived in washington in the month that turned out to be the deadliest in the last five years for those who are following the news it's becoming such a repetitive phrase the deadliest month in iraq for this many years said we we hear it all the time the fact is that following the u.s. invasion in two thousand and three terrorism has skyrocketed in iraq the six carrion war that broke out as a result of the invasion has created a great environment for terrorists the iraqi prime minister says it's getting worse because he says as a result of the so-called arab revolutions there is a power vacuum in the region which extremist forces take advantage of it specifically spoke about syria and the situation there of course even though iraq's nouri al maliki knows what the was the invasion has led to in his country he can't be too critical of washington because after all in a way it's thanks to the u.s. that he's now in power. let's take a closer look at the numbers the kind there was talking about according to iraq's
11:11 am
interior defense and health ministries the number of deaths in october reached nine hundred and sixty four people ninety percent of which were civilians and the government says this is the highest death toll in a single month since april two thousand and eight back then more than a thousand people were killed however the numbers don't respond with u.n. data which suggests july this year was equally as bad i spoke to half of them going to who's a kurdish iraqi novelist and former prisoner of saddam hussein's regime she says the ongoing bloodshed is forcing people to live in fear. it is affecting daily life from morning until night and every single hour of the day people are feeling unsafe to do anything whoever goes they don't know i mean doesn't know whether they come back safely or not. distrust of the regime and. terrorist attacks mostly targeting innocent people rather than.
